Daily Genesis pictures

Last Updated:

Now caught in a parking lot in Korea.
Seems that Hyundai thinks the car is already out. Or something..

I think the trunk design works much better than on the BMWs and is also much more integrated into the car than on the S class .
Good job.

  1. Honestly, the more I see of this car the more I like it. Everything seems very well put together inside and out.

    Nice job Hyundai.


  2. I agree with Jac….I am starting to fall in love with this car….except for the wing thing in the steering wheel.

  3. We have seen enough pictures of the Genesis! Someon´se gotta say this…

    It might me a huge step for Hyundai, but in the end it is a bland copy of a Honda Legend. I have to agree, the exterior design is nice to look at, massive and solid like the Lexus LS 400, but again – only if you get excited by legs, which are fallen asleep.

  4. I think you are smoking crack too Vince. It looks Chinese. The dash is horrendous (looks very American, only American cars would dare for a semi-circle).

    The rear end looks like a 90s economy Nissan rather than a “5 series”. The shark tail antenna is off a BMW obviously.

    This is what the original Lexus LS400 would have looked like if it bothered to be original. Sometimes its better to copy for a few years then try to be original.

    I’d rather have a V6 Lexus ES rather than a 600 hp V12 Genesis. That’s how much I hate the looks on this car. Having a V8 doesn’t make this car awesome.

  5. [I]”I’d rather have a V6 Lexus ES rather than a 600 hp V12 Genesis. That’s how much I hate the looks on this car. Having a V8 doesn’t make this car awesome.”[/I] Yeah, right, I’m so sure you would.

    Comments like these are without merit and is one of the most laughably ludricous. Also the one about it looking like an [I]”Acura Legend”[/I]is so ignorantly gutless it merits no response.

    If you don’t like this car just say so but don’t slam it saying some stupid ignoramous comment like: [I]”The rear end looks like a 90s economy Nissan rather than a “5 series”.[/I] Because it makes you seem like you’re the one not only smoking the crack but riding the horse’s as well.


  6. Since many have commented about how this vehicle has “copied” the BMW’s Bangle Butt, some research shows otherwise. Consider this interesting factoid that I came across after Googling “Bangle Butt”:
    Although named for Bangle, the two-level rear end styling has spread beyond BMW, and may not have even been invented there.
    In 1999, various Hyundai automobiles featured the “Bangle-butt,” and the Volvo S80 featured a milder form of the design.
    The Maybach 57 and 62 came out the same year as Bangle’s 2002 BMW 7 Series and also features this design element.
    Though the design element’s origins cannot be credited to Bangle, he did bring it into the spotlight resulting in heated debates.
    Since then it has been adopted by Toyota and others.

    Vehicles with a “Bangle-butt” include:

    1998-present Hyundai Grandeur
    1999-2001 Hyundai Sonata
    2004-present Nissan Maxima, Nissan Cefiro, [Nissan Teana]
    2002-present BMW E65/E66 7-Series
    2002-present Maybach 57 and 62
    2004-present BMW E63/E64 6-Series
    2006-present Mercedes-Benz W221 S-Class
    2006-present Toyota Majesta
    2007-present Toyota Camry
    2004-present Toyota Mark X
    2005-present Acura RL
    2004-present BMW E60/E61 5-Series

    Let’s get some perspective before being so quick to judgment on this car’s design originality. There are scores and scores of production cars that look like something else.

  7. I think this new hyundai looks nice,but it looks like the new honda accord with 5 series tail lights.

  8. I have to disagree. The new Accord is a step back in design inside and outside. By the way, the rear tail lights of the Accord were ripped from the Saturn Ion.

    Goggle: ‘Saturn Ion’ and pull up images of the new Accord and you’ll notice the similarities.


  9. I think this car looks really good and if the price was right I may even consider purchasing one in the future. Who cares if it’s not completely original. If I wanted something completely original then I’d be looking for the owner of that Cadillac Eldorado on Vinces other post and asking him to sell it to me. Good job Hyundai.
